Observation of discrete gap solitons in binary waveguide arrays

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report an experimental study of discrete gap solitons in binary arrays of optical waveguides. We observe self-focusing indicating soliton generation when the inclination angle of an input beam is slightly above the Bragg angle and show that the propagation direction of the emerging gap soliton is influenced by the effect of interband momentum exchange.
